Yup. This is true to the best of my knowledge. If there is an Nivida based AGP card later than the 7000 series, it's a mystery to me.

I would get pci express based motherboard for your graphics card because pci express is a lot better

I think they made some 8600's or something in AGP, but nothing high-end.

Not that I know of. And I'm 99% sure you can't use any kind of converter.

May I recommend it may be time for a new build? Even if it may be an inexpensive basic build.

You can put together a basic PDC build now on websites like Tigerdirect.com and Newegg.com for about 215-230. Gigabyte board with I believe Intel's G31 express chipset. PDC E2200 (2.2Ghz @ 800mhz FSB w/ 1Mb L2) and that 7200GS will go just fine with it. pick up a some odd 400W powersupply (I'd suggest at least a decent name brand like ThermalTake) and a S-ATA Harddrive or CD drive because most new motherboards don't support 2 IDE headers. So it's S-ATA of one or both. Grab some RAM (the board I mentioned takes DDR2 Single Channel @ 800mhz max stock [1066 Overclocked]). Get a basic CPU cooler for the E2200 or stick with retail fan (if you buy it boxed) and get some case fans. Don't forget a case.
